    @SweetJester:  First of all, I don’t know what you’re talking about when you say “back fat.” I don’t see any!!! And your butt looks fantastic! I think that the dress fits your perfectly. As far as losing more weight for the wedding, I agree, 7 pounds sounds like a healthy amount to lose. Make sure you drink TONS of water! Especially the week before the wedding. It’ll help you look even slimmer and drop pounds faster. (Although staying hydrated is always healthy, wedding or not.) Finally, it is up to you about the tattoo. I think it looks fine, and if it is a part of your personality, then I say leave it showing. If you don’t like the tattoo (regret having it), then cover it up. But ideally, it’s your choice.  You could also ask your photographer if they would be able to edit out the tattoo in a picture or two if you don’t like the look of it. It looks like a small enough tattoo that they may be able to do that.

    I actually see muscle definition in your back.  Secondly, I don’t think your back looks bad at all.  I think you look very womanly.

    Next, I would cover up the tattoo.  Your dress is very beautiful and classic, and your tattoo doesn’t really fit in with that in my opinion.

    @SweetJester:  You look amazing!  I don’t see any back fat, and your butt just looks shapely! That is desireable, not a bad thing!

    However, I totally understand what you’re feeling.  I had my first fitting last week and even though I’ve been working really hard to tone up, especially in the chest, arms, and back, I still saw a gross back muffin top!  My mom and MOH assured me it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was, but I still saw it.  We’re loweing the back just a little, so hopefully that will help.  That being said, even if we hadn’t lowered the back, I doubt anyone else would notice!  We’re our own worst critics, and we see all of our own flaws highlighted.  Everyone else is just going to see a beautiful bride!  That’s what I see!

    As for the tattoo….well, I am of the mind that you got your tattoo for a reason.  If you regret it now, cover it up.  If you don’t regret it, then rock it!  It’s a part of who you are.  And formal ballroom wedding be damned, you’re still you.  Don’t be afraid to show it off!

    It doesn’t matter how much weight you lose, most brides end up with some back fat. It’s just a fact of life with strapless dresses. Don’t let it get to you. You do look great.

    @SweetJester:  Wait!  Where’s the back fat and bum, because I certainly don’t see them!  It’s looks like you now have a properly fitting dress.  By the way… can I have your waist, it’s awesome!

    @SweetJester:  I don’t see any back fat. And a mermaid style gown gives you a butt that you really don’t have.  I have NO butt and my dress gives me some curves and I LOVE that about it!! I think it looks great on you.

    I think it looks great! Very flattering and congrats on the weight loss! While I love tattoos, my opinion is that it would be less distracting in ur professional photos if u cover it. I’m covering mine for the wedding day.

    @SweetJester:  First off, you look AMAZING! Like WOW CONGRATS! That is a LOT of weight loss!

    Secondly: I agree with PPs– That’s not back fat, that’s muscle!

    And as for the tattoo: Does is have a special meaning? Did you get it in memory of your BFF who died tragically in college/long lost grandmother/dog that saved you from addiction? Then I would leave it. But if it’s just a “I think it’s pretty/cool/whatever” tattoo, I would cover it!

    Make sure that if you do cover your tattoo, whatever you use doesn’t get end up over your dress, especially if you start to sweat a bit!
